Field Trips

Apple Jack Orchards 

We will be taking an Apple Orchard Tour, which consists of three stations including apple tasting, apple cider tasting and eating apple donuts, while listening to an educational talk with visual aids about apple growing.  There will be an interactive apple picking demonstration and pollination puppet play for the students.  We will also take a wagon ride through the pick-your-own orchard.  This ride will be narrated by the tractor diver for even more information!  Everyone takes home one apple and lots of memories from their orchard experience.  The bus will return to the school at 11:45.

A visit to Como Park Zoo will always enhance any curriculum!

At Como Park Zoo you can get closer to the animals.  You might even get face to face with mischievous Gorillas, Father Schroeder, Mother Alice and baby Nyati born Oct. 18, 2017.  We will see a different side of the animals at Como Zoo!  The Zoo has enrichment activities provided for the animals to encourage regular stimulation, natural behaviors and curiosity.  After visiting the zoo, we will be picnicking from 11:45 to 12:15 right outside the gate in Como Park.  The bus will return to the school at 1:00.
